Bounty: 50

Why does a person’s mind keep imagining situations with problems that do not exist and continue solving those problems in the imagination?
This keeps the person generally in absent-mindedness and oblivious of the real problems at hand and fails to solve real problems in life.
Is is any syndrome or disorder?
What is the solution?
IS there something like CBT/DBT/IPSRT that can make a change?

#StackBounty: #rnn #attention Transformers for embedding sequences as fixed-length vectors

Bounty: 50

An encoder decoder network of recurrent neural networks can be used to learn the identity function over some set of sequences. If you do this without attention, the output of the decoder can be thought of as a fixed length representation of these sequences. I’ve been calling this idea a recurrent autoencoder, but I haven’t seen it explored by anyone else, yet. This could be very useful for machine learning tasks on sequences, since you can learn from fixed-length vectors. (Especially if you have lots of unlabeled data, but a small amount of labels)

My question is, “Can a similar thing be done with Transformers?” I see that this question is a bit vague, but this is my best effort at asking it in a way that could be answered.

#StackBounty: #cognitive-psychology #attention #multi-tasking What is the name of inattention/autopilot phenomenon that results in &#39…

Bounty: 50

Suppose I am doing the laundry while simultaneously taking out the trash, so am carrying a bag of dirty clothes in one hand and a bag of rubbish in the other. I might be on autopilot where I lift up the lid of the garbage bin, throw my laundry into it and turn to walk away before then realising what I have done: thrown the wrong bag one into the bin i.e. “right idea, wrong object”.

I know that it’s some sort of inattention effect that is studied in cognitive psychology, but can somebody tell me what the correct name for this phenomenon is?

edit
Dual-task interference is closer to the concept I’m looking for
